PREVIEW: SWINDON V ALBION

25 August 2014



Sami Hyypia will still be without midfielders Kemy Agustien, Solly March and Dale Stephens for Brighton & Hove Albion’s Capital One Cup second round tie at Swindon Town tomorrow night.

The trio are all ruled out of tomorrow’s match by injury, while new signing Adrian Colunga is awaiting international clearance, if he is to make his first appearance for the Seagulls.

Hyypia said, “With Colunga we still haven't got the international clearance, so we will see how it develops for tomorrow.

“We have to go day-by-day with Kemy, but he won't be involved in the game. Solly has a stress problem in his back and he is seeing a specialist tomorrow.

"We'll know more about it then and when he is going to be fit.”

Hyypia has hinted he may rotate his squad, but says he isn’t taking Swindon Town lightly – and has warned his players against complacency.

“This game will give us an option to give minutes to some of the players who haven't played a lot recently.

“I have said before I want to win every game. I will play the side tomorrow we think we can win the game.

“We need a good attitude and good mentality. We will need to make a good start. We want to go to the next round, play well and score some goals.”

Swindon looks set to welcome back Australian international Massimo Luongo after recovering from a tight hamstring, but the Robins are uncertain as to whether midfielder Josh Lelan will be involved after his loan deal from Derby expired on Saturday.

Supporters should note that tickets for tomorrow's match can be purchased on the day when the away ticket office opens at 5:30pm.

Only cash is accepted and away tickets can also be collected there.
